Royal Caribbean worked directly with the playAWARDS crew to reach a new audience, taking advantage of a number of branding opportunities available through the playAWARDS platform. Ultimately, we landed on the idea of a new take on a promotional sweepstakes. The playAWARDS marketing team worked closely with PLAYSTUDIOS app developers to run an intuitive, seamlessly integrated promotional sweepstakes that was promoted within the myVEGAS and POP! Slots apps.
The contest put some serious wind in Royal Caribbean’s sails. The social content from the event—including both player content and myVEGAS content—generated millions of player impressions during the active promotion window. But, as is always the goal with playAWARDS, we drove traffic from the digital world to the real one by capping off the promotion with an incredible on-ship group activation called myVEGAS at Sea, where 200 of the game’s most engaged players shared a week-long hosted cruise experience unlike anything they’d ever before been a part of.
